This is a very impressive recovery effect, and says a lot for the formulation's repair abilities.Originally Posted by Free Weight FriedelMy energy level and mental focus was still at an increased level. The tingling in my face subsided. The Mind/Muscle connection was very evident today. I was in a ZONE and I stayed that way throughout my entire workout! My muscles felt really pumped and hard today.Originally Posted by BlackjackcatI have now used this for a few more workouts and I am really sold now. My strength had been stagnant, but I am going up in weight on all my sets, each workout now. I just put in a order for another bottle so I can run this 10-12 weeks before taking a short break(as stated on the bottle). Thanks for the best product to come out in a long time.Originally Posted by foolonthehillStrength: The PR's set are great evidence here. Everything is getting lighter all the time, it's excellent. Keep in mind that yesterday and today my calories have been severely lowered and I was still able to perform at (for me at least) peak capacity. This is not to say that I was not experiencing strength gains before ultima, only that the strength and endurance gains now are much, much quicker.Originally Posted by IbballardEnergy: 9/10
Had an absolutely phenomenal workout. And that's not something I say lightly. I annihilated my chest with more sets, heavier weight, and in less time than I have in a long time.
The muscular control I had while bench pressing was probably the best part of the whole workout. I have torn my pectoral muscle twice. The first time in a relatively minor way, and the second time the tendon connecting it to my bicep snapped and rolled up into my chest. It took me a long time to train my compensator muscles to take on that burden, and I have never hit the same weights since, due to fear of doing it again (not to mention the difficulty tearing the other side's rotator cuff provided, bench became an essentially impossible tangle balance-wise). The benefit of the neuromuscular connection that this product provides is that while performing quality reps, I could very distinctly control muscle contractions on a very specific level, allowing me to have confidence that I was performing the exact movement with the exact force necessary to execute the motion. This means that I could push myself harder without fighting against myself. In conjunction with the increased muscular endurance and strength, this made for a potent combination throughout the entire workout.
At the end of the workout I rocked out an excellent HIIT routine. I typically do 5-60 second sprints at 12 mph, separated by 90 seconds at 7 mph. I got done with this today, started to enter my cooldown, and decided that I just was not done yet. I hit three more 60 second 12 mph runs separated by 60 second 8 mphs. I was exhausted and sweating, but all told this was a two hour balls to the wall workout, and I gave it everything I had. Maintaining this kind of intensity for this long is something I've maybe experienced a dozen times over the last couple years, but never when I wasn't stimmed to the teeth. I was very impressed....Originally Posted by CROSSFIRE24
Mixability: 10/10 No problems whatsoever. Drop it in a shaker cup and give it a few whirls and it's good to go.
Taste: 10/10 A lot of people described the taste (I have the first run with no extra flavoring) to be unpleasant and chemical. It is probably the most enjoyable supplement I have ever drank with a nice citrusy flavor. (Sort of reminds me of Body Octane but much better) The 20-30 Seconds recommended to hold it under your tongue doesn't even bother me because I really like the taste.
Cognitive Effects: 10/10 This is no lie. I have never felt as healthy and well as I do when I've taken Ultima. My awareness and focus are off the charts. I feel the mind-muscle connection which is something you have to experience because it's incredible to feel them molded as one working together.
Energy: 8/10 Only because I'm coming off of Caffeine Supplements. Animal Pump gave me crazy energy that lasted 4-5 hours and got me through the evening/night of lifting/working/homework but Ultima gives me a steady flow that fills every need and lasts the rest of the day until REDuction PM = night night. The Drive I feel is the most important aspect. I just have to get things done that is my mind's mission. I want to hit the weights harder than ever and not stop until I can't move. It's a great feeling to have this determination. I have plenty enough energy to lift for around 1.5 hours and then go play basketball for another 1-1.5. I miss the extreme boost from the Caffeine but I enjoy this constant supply delivered by Ultima and I'm sure once my body gets used to the absence of the Caffeine this will jump to 10/10.
Pumps: 10/10 Mind-Muscle Connection FTW!!! Linking the muscle(s) you are focusing on working out with a direct connection to the brain results in optimal exertion and stimulation of that muscle. Pumps are far from the most important thing but the feeling of your muscles ripping out of your legs, arms, chest, etc. is quite nice. This definitely is > Arginine/Glycerol Supps that I have tried in the past.
Strength: 10/10 I've been on Ultima for 2 weeks and have gained 15 lbs. on my bench rep weight (210-225). I promise I'm not exaggerating this at all. I'm sure there are other factors but I feel much stronger on this than anything else I have tried. I always respond well to MCC though and the SCC and PCC additions seem to have increased this.
Price: 10/10 I know that $50 for 20 servings sounds rough but you really have to understand the incredible ingredients and the amount of work Omega has put into this. It's a steal for what you get esp. when I only work out hard on MWF which means it will last me ~7 weeks.
Alpha-Male: I'm not really giving this a rating it's just an unexpected bonus that I seem to have acquired from this. I have noticed increased assertiveness and aggression shining through me. This is appreciated for me since I am normally quiet spoken and easy going but I have to attribute this change to Ultima because it's the only Supp change I have made lately. (I know it's not a test booster or a PH but I swear this has happened lol)
Overall: 10/10 Honestly. Best $50 I've ever spent hands down. I hope that Omega is able to keep this same formula and price as I will definitely be picking up another Tub. I wanted to rave about it after the first night I tried it but I gave it two weeks and decided it was long enough to rule out the dreaded "Placebo Effect from the Black Lagoon". I highly recommend this product to any and everyone for building muscle as well as overall health. Thanks for all the hard work Omega! Let me know if I left anything out of the review and I will gladly answer any questions. Hope this helps!
